Back to school haircuts. I took a picture because an actual hairdresser cut their hair this time. I always think it looks ok when I do it but when they get cut by a professional I realise how basic my efforts are.

Do you follow Alicia Paulson's blog, dear reader? If you like beautifully crafted things and beautiful photos then I can recommend it. She is an exceptional needleworker (among other things) and her latest project is so exquisite I wanted to share it with you. I took one look at it and knew straight away that it wouldn't even make my 'maybe one day' list. 3rd Birthday Quilt.

Warm sunshine. Summer can't come fast enough.

Number 6

On the littlest duckling's birthday another baby girl was born. A baby girl who is also the sixth child in her family. Isn't that a lovely coincidence? There is a bit of a gap between this new little girl and her bigger brothers and sisters so there are lots of strong arms to carry her and warm laps eager to hold her. I think she is going to grow up in a very special cocoon indeed.
I wrapped up one of my little babushka/matroyshka dolls to send up north to their beautiful house in the trees near the easternmost edge of the Australia.
Welcome to the world Lucy!

For one or my beautiful god daughters who is turning 12.

Offcuts of rebar are lying around the house and there are muddy boot prints tracking through the rooms. We're going to make it a 'thing'.

I have never managed to make a baked cheesecake that didn't crack but covering it with strawberries is yummy way to hide the flaw.

Happy Birthday Duckling

Cupcakes at noon, strawberry cheesecake at night and lots of reminiscing about when she was new. These two years have passed so quickly and have been filled with so much joy.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Heart full.
